Also I ordered myself a copy of What She Does Next Will Astound You because I think it’s a really good illustration of the core concerns in Class, particularly in the political connections with April’s character, but also in the Charlie/Quill conflict.

Doing my research!

Reyes dad teaches him how to be 'smooth' and make witty one liners when playing spy with his kid(s). He also teaches Reyes how to 'flirt' with people.

I imagine the first time Reyes is rejected (maybe around sixteen) he goes home and tells his dad and his dad’s like, “No wonder that one didn’t work- you have to switch gears when you’re flirting with a girl, son. Goddamn that’s embarrassing I cannot believe you- Wow. WOW. You looked at her and actually thought what you were going to say was smart. I’m ashamed. Raised you wrong I guess.” 

Reyes is really confused. “You were the one who TOLD me to say it when I asked about her!”

“I thought you were talking about a guy, Reyes!” (Bisexual dad there for his bisexual son!!! SO ABOUT IT. I’m gonna cry imagining Reyes going to his dad like “Apparently I can’t like both boys and girls? Am I weird for liking both???” And dad’s like “WHOA WHAT. WHO TOLD YOU THIS I’lL KILL THEM IT’S NORMAL REYES BECAUSE IT’S HOW YOU FEEL” Claps a hand on Reyes’ shoulder. “Dad also likes boys too, he just loves mom.” Reyes is not havin’ it. Gross, dad. TMI.)

((Dad Vidal smiles down when Reyes sends Scott that “In case you were wondering, I have much better taste in men than I do women” email. What a way to save it))

Unfortunately for Mom Vidal, Reyes also learned how to work people from his dad. “The kid could steal half a store out from under my nose and it’s because you teach him those things! I got a call from his teacher earlier- she said he took her datapad and lesson plans, but he was so polite and charming when she found out that she didn’t think anything needed to be done!

Dad wipes a lone tear from his eye. He’s so proud.

Neptune belongs to another dimension (the psychic worlds) and is not at home in the world of matter. It is not interested in worldly success. It is psychic, mystical, dreamy, sensitive, emotional and receptive in nature. It works subtly and unseen. On the negative side it works under-cover, like the termites who invade wood and cause disintegration, or the cancer cells that eat away at the physical structure, unknown and unrecognized, until considerable damage is done. Fog and mist are related to Neptune for they screen the landscape and one does not see clearly. Neptune rules the ocean and the moon rules tides. The symbol of Neptune – ♆ – shows its tieup with the Moon. The cross piercing the moon is symbolic of the emotional suffering that has to be undergone to set the personal self free, making it a reflector of the Solar Self.

Hi kaz, i'm still not over your fic and still crying over it. But if you are going to write another fic (not for the rival series), will you consider changing up the characters a bit? Like viktor being the shy one (or super dense) or yuuri without anxiety?

I will be writing other non-Rivals fic but the characters are always going to retain their core personality traits. Different settings and backgrounds may cause Yuuri to express his anxiety differently but it’s a part of who he is and I wont erase a mental health issue for the sake of an AU. As for Viktor, he also has core personality traits and so while a drastic change in his life and background might cause him to act a little differently, be more shy etc, he’s still mainly going to maintain his core personality. 

I’m setting up my redbubble shop right now aaaa

i’m excited!

and I’m gonna spend the next days/weeks making some neat pictures to put into my store! I really wanna do lots of Heathers and Svtfoe prints (obviously) but tell me: what other stuff would you like to see/possibly purchase?

I’m thinking about Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, Steven Universe, maybe Kim Possible, Gravity Falls .. what do you think?

okay but what is THROAM

apparently it’s a panic at the disco fic all i know is it’s like DUMB long and in first person and set in the 70s…. i’ve never read the entire thing but i’ve read snippets of it and i thought the writing style fucking SUCKED


#two very different relationships for shaw yet both so important #they both loved her so much but in different ways (one platonically and the other romantically) and its big because for someone that always thought something was wrong with her and no one would ever take the time to GET her #she ended up gaining two people that legit would’ve died for her and vice versa #they BOTH understood her and never judged her and loved her exactly the way she was #not to mention root and reese’s love for her even helped THEM bond in a way that made them start to care about each other #i just have a lot of feelings about these three tbh

lemme tell y’all something my swedish teacher taught us

DISCLAIMER: I have literally zero sources on this and save for the background info, I might be talking out of my arse.

Anyway, there’s this group of people called the finn-swedes. They are people who are finnish, live in Finland, but speak Swedish as a first language. It’s due to them that Finland is a bilingual country, though they are quite a small minority living mostly at the coast.

 One of them was this lovely woman named Tove Jansson; An artist, an author and a profilic LGBT figure.

The creatures on her hands and on the table are called moomins, her most known creation though not the one she was most fond of. She saw herself mostly as a painter, but the moomins were a hit, and she wrote a whole series of books, which was later adapted into a cartoon animated in Japan (so technically speaking an anime).

The show is now a staple of a finnish childhood, and many finns will regard it fondly.

BUT this is the part that gets fun (and potentially bs)

While the finnish dub of the show was done in Finland, the swedish dub was also done in Finland, by a cast of finn-swede voice actors, perhaps as a homage to the original author or maybe it was cheaper or some shit, idk. Regardless, the swedish dub was shown in Sweden as well, and if finn-swedes are rare in Finland, they are much rarer in Sweden.

 So the first and perhaps the only time that Swedish children have encountered a finn-swede accent (dialect? someone correct me) was in this sickeningly sweet (though sometimes unnecessarily terrifying) cartoon about these pastel-coloured gentle anarchists.

 So from a swedish perspective, finn-swedes talk like moomins.

Here, in case I haven’t quite driven the point home:
